Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Play Ball!

You got to take it one game at a time
Rick Dempsey
Major League Baseball Catcher
Things get thrown at you every day
Low shots
Cheap shots
 You choose what you want to take a swing at
It is your game, after all
and that's poetiquejustis
My brothers and sisters, consider it nothing but joy when you fall into all sorts of trials,
James 1:2

What To Do When Faced with a Mystery

Rita: Do you every have déjà vu?
Phil: Didn't you just ask me that? 
"Ground Hog Day"
You can close your eyes
You can close your mind
You can try to stop the clock
But think of all you will be missing?
Do you really want life to be a rerun of all your yesterdays?
 I didn't think so!
Go!  Solve the mysteries around you!
and that's poetiquejustis
For God says, "At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.
 Indeed, the "right time" is now. 
Today is the day of salvation
2 Corinthians 6:2

Are We Having Fun Yet?

Playing lifts you out of yourself and in to a delirious place
Jacqueline Du Pres, Cellist
Out of yourself
Over yourself
Set free from yourself
 Being yourself
Enjoying yourself
Go- make yourself delirious!
and that's poetiquejustis
The Lord has done great things for us! We are glad! 
Psalm 126:3

Put Your Stamp on Life!

Consider the postage stamp:  
its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing till it gets there.  
~Josh Billings

You can lose your keys

You can lose your way

You can lose your focus

You can lose your appetite

But whatever you do -
do not lose heart!
that's right...it is all about hanging in there!

and that's poetiquejustis

What To Do When the Road Bends

A bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you fail to make the turn
Unknown Author
Dead ends?
New beginnings
Road blocks?
End of the road?
Start of a new life
Make the turn
and that's poetiquejustis

Let's Go Fly a Kite

Imagination is the highest kite one can fly
Lauren Bacall
Just because no one has done it
does not mean it cannot be done
Just because no one has thought it
Does not mean it is not a good idea
You are here for a reason
Just imagine that!
and that's poetiquejustis

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31

Let's Think This Through

Great thoughts speak only to the thoughtful mind, 
but great actions speak to all mankind
Emily P Bissell
I like to think...I really do

 In fact...
I like to think that I spend quite a bit of time thinking
I think about things that are important

and those that are not so important

But there comes a time that thinking must become a deed
Otherwise, is is like buying all the ingredients for an  extraordinary chocolate cake
And never baking a thing
That takes the cake
and that's poetiquejustis
Do not refrain from doing what is excellent as long as you are able.
Proverbs 3:27

The Most Important Work

The important work
of moving the world forward
does not wait to be done
by perfect men
George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans)
They say it takes a village
I say it takes you
And me
And anyone else ready to show up
And do the work
That's how it gets done
And that's poetiquejustis
  Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. James 1:27
